Havana, 12 Feb.- The President of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, thanked Bolivia for its unwavering love and solidarity towards his country today, during a meeting with Foreign Minister Celinda Sosa.
In the social network X, the head of state described the meeting as a sense of encounter and stressed that, with the brotherhood that unites their peoples, they talked about what was done and how much more can be done.
Díaz-Canel conveyed a greeting to his Bolivian counterpart, Luis Arce, while ratifying the will to continue expanding bilateral relations and strengthening cooperation ties in the economic-commercial field.
He thanked Bolivia for its continued support in the fight against the blockade imposed by the United States on the island more than six decades ago.
For her part, Sosa affirmed that Cuba and Bolivia are sister countries and highlighted the positive impact of Cuban medical missions in his country, especially in the training of Bolivian doctors.
These are the reasons to come and visit and talk with the president to strengthen those diplomatic relations, especially those ties of solidarity, between the peoples, the Foreign Minister stressed.
She highlighted that Bolivia in several international forums condemns the unilateral US policy against the island, which violates universally established human rights.
The Bolivian foreign minister also spoke on Monday with her Cuban counterpart, Bruno Rodríguez, who confirmed the confidence that both governments and peoples will continue working together as part of the integration mechanisms to which they belong.
Meanwhile, Sosa assured that the Arce cabinet seeks to expand and strengthen the alliance with the Caribbean island in the environment of the Bolivarian Alternative for the peoples of the Americas- Treaty of Trade with the Peoples (ALBA-TCP in Spanish).
During her stay in this capital, the head of Bolivian diplomacy will give a lecture at the University of Havana, on Bolivia’s experience with industrialization and the Productive Community Economic Model.
